Lapenkova N.V., Firsov D.V. - Cluster as the mechanism for neo-industrialization of the economy pp. 47-60


Abstract: The subject of this research is various approaches towards the definition of clusters applicable to economic relations, as well as their key characteristics. Special attention is given to the analysis of the existing forms and types of clusters. The authors describe the role and place of clusters in neo-industrialization process, since cluster is not just a form of business organization, but also a form of social interaction and reproduction. Due to the ability of a cluster to accumulate and use knowledge independently, it should be viewed as the mechanism for neo-industrialization of the economy, as well as an integral element for ensuring regional competitiveness. The article notes a substantial difference between the cluster form of organization and the holding form of organization based on the Russian and foreign research, as well as the differences between economic clusters and territorial production complexes, which are characteristic to sectoral approach. The conclusion is made that the prerequisite for the emergence of cluster is not the solution of the administrative guidance system, but a natural need of the business, favorable conditions for integration, and availability of the necessary infrastructure. The novelty consists in viewing cluster as the mechanism for neo-industrialization of the economy. It is underlined that clusters create a synergistic effect for the global region they are located in, as well as for the economies of the countries, separate regions or territories of these countries. The authors indicate the need for elaboration of the new approach towards the development of cluster policy. The new cluster policy is intended to regulate the industrial innovation process in the Russian Federation.
Safiullin M.R., Savelichev M.V., El'shin L.A. - Cryptocurrency potential in the context of transition of global economy to the sixth technological paradigm pp. 74-85


Abstract: This article explores the potential of using cryptocurrency as universal currency in the conditions of transition of the global economic system towards sixth technological paradigm. The goal of this research consists in analysis of the patterns of co-evolution of the global financial system, technological system, and global economy. Based on the historical material, the author demonstrates how shift in technological paradigms is accompanied by financial crises, and result in the changes of the world financial system. Over the course of time, the gold served as the universal currency, but the advancement of technologies demanded the transition towards more flexible forms of world currency based on the national currencies of most industrialized countries. Currently, the transition to the technology of the sixth technological paradigm is followed by the global financial crisis. The U.S. dollar is not handling the functions imposed by the latest technologies upon monetary systems. The conclusion is made that finite currencies are being replaced by an innovative generation of monetary systems that are based on cryptocurrency. The authors systematize the innovation forms of investment, accounting, keeping and saving of funds, which are based on cryptocurrency and blockchain. It is demonstrated that innovation financial instruments, including different types of cryptocurrency, tokens, smart contracts, and cryptocurrency exchanges, open new opportunities for effective investment in the technologies of sixth technological paradigm. The results of research can be valuable for the government branches in establishment of the policy for usage of cryptocurrency and blockchain for entrepreneurs dealing with developments in the area of practical implementation of cryptocurrency as innovative currency.
Baev S.A. - Theoretical grounds of the development of innovation infrastructure pp. 83-98


Abstract: The object of this research is the innovation infrastructure. The subject is the key theoretical approaches towards comprehension of innovation infrastructure, subsystems of innovation infrastructure, role of the state in formation and development of innovation infrastructure, as well as problems of institutionalization of innovation environment in the Russian Federation at the current stage. The scientific novelty of this article is reflected in the following aspects: formulation of the original definition of innovation infrastructure on the basis of systematization of theoretical approaches towards interpretation of innovation infrastructure in Russian science; development of the original approach towards classification of subsystems of innovation infrastructure; proposal of the methods for eliminating the flaws inherent to institutionalization of innovations in Russia at the present stage. The main conclusions lie in the following statements: 1) the term “innovation infrastructure” should be defined as “a set of interrelated organizations and institutions aimed at ensuring the implementation of innovation projects”; 2) innovation infrastructure consists of the five subsystems, two of which (production-technological and financial) are central, and three are (information-consulting, human resource, and sales) are supporting; 3) strong coordination of all subsystems of innovation infrastructure in modern Russia requires adhering to cluster arrangement of innovation infrastructure. The concentration of all enterprises in a single space would allow maximizing their efficiency, as well as reducing the costs. Clusters can be formed in accordance with one of the models that are actively used in the developed countries, such as science and technology parks and technopolises.

Parfenova M.V. - Development of Measures Aimed at Increasing Efficiency of a Corporate Innovation Policy (the Case Study of OOO 'AgroPromServis' pp. 176-180


Abstract: As a result of an established innovation policy that acts as a catalyzer of the financial economic activities, OOO 'AgroPromServis' is a financiall sound company and has a sustainable profit according to the results of the period under research (2013 - 2015). Nevertheless, indicators showing profit before taxation and net profit of the company are rather insignificant and profitability ratios are not high. Moreover, OOO 'AgroPromServis' does not conduct an efficient innovation policy because their annual investment of assets into main funds and equipment assembly have not increased the economic added value d of the company over the period since 2013 till 2015. Quite on the contrary, the economic added value has shown a tendency towards decreasing which also demonstrates the decline in the company's value. Generally, the main strategic purpose of the development of the aforesaid company is to increase its economic and technological efficiency. To achieve the purpose, it is planned: to develop prospective areas; to implement new production technologies; to launch production of new kinds of products, etc. The analysis of the innovation policy has allowed to discover the main problems and gaps which, first of all, are the following: 1) innovation policy of OOO 'AgroPromServis' involves plain reproduction which does not increase efficiency of their financial and economic activity in general; 2) due to low volumes of net profits, the company has a shortage of internal sources to fund investment activities; 3) projects executed by the company are not efficient enough because the company has a limited fund for financing all desirable investment projects and therefore they have to choose between investment projects trying to achieve the best balance between risks and profitability of projects as well as taking into account their capital-ouput ratio, i.e. necessary expenses.
